Todd: What is that noise outside?
Me: It sounds like a vacuum cleaner. Maybe someone got a snow vacuum for Christmas. Why just blow the snow around when you can suck it up?
Todd: A snow vacuum?
Me: Yeah. Think of the money it would save the city from having to haul it away.
Todd: And what would you do with the snow after?
Me: You could put it in your rain barrel to water your garden in the spring. Oh my god, I’m a genius.
Todd: That wouldn’t work. The ice would expand in the winter so it would overflow and by the spring it would evaporate so you’d have about ¼ cup of water left.
Me: I don’t care. I’m calling Dragon’s Den.
Todd: Good luck with that.
